Planning I think can help and also to make sure you are balance and don't get too hungry which often leads to sugar cravings.
If you like chocolate how about dipping a banana in a small amount of melted chocolate and then let it freeze so it lasts longer. Or like others stated a small amount of dark chocolate or even a snack size candy bar which again if you freeze lasts longer

Thank you so much for all of your advice! Tonight I tried making date balls rolled in coconut as some of you suggested. It was fantastic! A perfect alternative to ice cream or candy. I think I need to also look at structuring my meals. I tend to graze throughout the day and it may help if i plan out my meals.

I usually get the highest content chocolate bar I can (from 70% up to 99%)and have 1/2 to one square of it when I want chocolate. Eat slowly; melt in mouth

The rest can be kept in fridge or freezer

I recently discovered dates rolled in coconut. One is 110 calories but is usually sufficient to knock out a sweet craving for me.

When I feel like something really sweet, I will often have a dried date or dried fig, and nibble them. I need a very high fibre diet, too, so it helps with that :-)

Just lately I have been off some meals, and all I have felt like is something sweet, so I make couscous with hot milk and chopped dates in it, with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. The dates make it sweet, and it is quite nourishing - like a Rice Pudding without the fuss or length of time to make one.

I had to eliminate sugar and flour completely to feel better personally. To each his own.

I started a thread similar, but the opposite strategy.

i'm going to give in, but very small amounts, each day. quarter sized cookie. mini brownie bites. or a spoon full of icecream. or a single hershy kiss.

don't know if this will work yet.

good luck, though!

I have a horrible sweet tooth; chocolate is typically my biggest downfall. I was wondering if anyone could provide some ideas on how to curb a sweet tooth? Thanks!
